Britain joined the United States’ invasion to oust the Taliban in 2001 because it feared America would “nuke the shit” out of Afghanistan, the former British ambassador to Washington reportedly told a television documentary to be screened Saturday.
It’s really a pitiful excuse for Blair to make. While it may explain Afghanistan; it sure doesn’t explain his collusion with the Bush Administration on Iraq. The rest of the world saw through the fake Iraq weapons of mass deception story. He’s going to have to do a lot better than that if he wants any slack from Britons.
